COVER STORY
AFI:  With
Decemberunderground, AFI stands atop a media and marketing edifice not of their making in a world very far removed from their humble beginnings. Yet despite it all, AFI has done what so few bands before them have managed to do: maintain a connection with the underground. This sort of success is what every band, whatever comments they may make to the contrary, hopes and dreams of at some level. “AFI started out like most bands in the scene. We came from playing parks in our hometown and veteran’s halls in surrounding towns. It is surreal to think how far we’ve come," says frontman Davey Havok alongside guitarist Jade Puget.

IN-DEPTH INTERVIEWS
UNEARTH: A shield cast in steel adorns the album cover of Massachusetts stalwarts Unearth’s latest offering of European metal fused with American hardcore, III: In the Eyes of Fire. Festooned with battle axes, skulls, and the band’s name blazoned into well honed metal plates—no, friends, this is not a kinder, gentler Unearth, not by a long shot. “It’s definitely a harder, faster, darker record than our previous efforts,” vocalist Trevor Phipps boasts on the drive home from rehearsal, before adding mischievously, “I love the darkness on this record.”

HATEBREED: The body of work Hatebreed has developed throughout the last decade is rife with staunchly individualistic anthems. Hell, Perseverance is a 38 minute ode to the virtue of struggle, uplifting and inspirational to any and all who have at one time or another felt as if their world might at any moment fall apart. So it’s a bit remarkable to hear frontman Jamey Jasta—who has given so much hope and strength to so many—describe the dark place he found himself during the embryonic stages of the band’s new album Supremacy.

NORMA JEAN: “It’s definitely the best thing we’ve ever done for sure,” Norma Jean singer Cory Brandan immediately exclaims. Although he recognizes the fact that every band probably says this about their new record, Brandan’s excitement about the disc, entitled Redeemer, is palpable. Brandan discusses the writing and recording process of Redeemer and, most importantly, where this album fits into Norma Jean’s career goals as a band.

BURY YOUR DEAD doesn't wait for good things to happen; they make them happen. Beauty and the Breakdown is every bit as intense as Cover Your Tracks, yet everything from the arrangements to the production is markedly improved. An enthusiastic Mat Bruso spoke to us about the band’s second-to-none work ethic and the meticulous attention to detail that went into the making of Beauty and the Breakdown.

RISE AGAINST:  The Sufferer & the Witness is classic Rise Against—which means there are songs that are direct descendents of their early favorites, when they began perfecting their punk hardcore hybrid sound, but also songs that sound unlike any that have come before. Frontman Tim McIlrath is clearly excited that his band isn’t shying from the uncharted territory.

WALLS OF JERICHO: Vocalist Candace Kucsulain is a badass chick who screams herself hoarse fronting her Michigan based band. She doesn’t like to make a big deal about her gender, but this is one tough cookie you don’t want to mess with. We spoke with the singer about her musical past and the evolution of Walls of Jericho.

MISERY SIGNALS: Mirrors, the follow-up to Of Malice and the Magnum Heart, rocks a little harder and turns the corner. While mixing the album in Cleveland, Ohio, guitarist Kyle Johnson and new frontman Karl Schubach spoke with us about the major developments in the Misery Signals camp.
